Speaker FAQ

How long are sessions?

General sessions are 45 minutes and may include 10-15 minutes for audience Q+A.

How can I help improve my session's visibility in the community?

Once you've submitted a session, promote it! Community comments help our selection teams better know what our attendees are interested in seeing at Florida DrupalCamp.

How will my session be recorded?

Yes! We're planning on recording all of the sessions.

What permissions do I need to present?

Ensure you have explicit permission to share your company/client information, or at what level is appropriate to share. Proposing a session without permission is grounds for session cancellation.

Go to the "Genius Bar" after the session

This year, we're borrowing an idea from local WordCamps, where we'll have experts hang out at the 'genius bar' ready to answer questions. We also ask that speakers head there after their sessions to answer additional questions.

The Classroom

All rooms will have a podium, projector, and screen. You will need to bring your own laptop for your session. Setup times: Speakers are required to arrive at least 10 minutes early for setup. Speakers have access to the session rooms from prior to the first session of the day and also during the breaks.


There is visitor Wi-Fi available in all of the rooms, however, since connections to WiFi can sometimes be unreliable, we STRONGLY recommend you have the ability to do your session without WiFi. There will also be wired internet available (on a 50mb connection). Be sure to bring an ethernet cable if your presentation requires an internet connection.

What to Bring

  • Your laptop, with session slides loaded (it doesn't hurt to bring a backup USB).
  • Your laptop's power adaptor.
  • A 110 volt power converter if you are visiting from outside the US.
  • All classrooms have a HDMI connection to the projector. FLDC will provide VGA to HDMI converters for all classrooms, but if you have one, please bring it in case we run short. Please be sure your laptop can connect to either HDMI or VGA connector
  • A slide advancer, if you want one.
